Kurds continue advances in Kobani

Published November 24th, 2014 - 11:14 GMT

Kurdish fighters made gains against ISIL extremists in the Syrian town of Kobani overnight, AFP reports. Activists on the ground report that Kurdish forces have advanced in the east and northeast of the strategic city.

“At least 18 ISIL militants were killed in the fighting, as well as a number of Kurdish fighters,” the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said Monday.

Kurdish forces have been battling ISIL extremists since they launched their assault on Kobani over three months ago. The U.S. has carried out numerous air strikes against ISIL militants in an effort to aid Kurdish fighters.
